Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces// WRS// General // By Mark // May 27, 2019

This year's Chelsea Flower Show was, as ever, sold out, but if you missed it, Hester has some highlights for you. If you want to go next year, the easiest way is to join the RHS, find out how on www.rhs.org.uk and then go as a Member. You can find all the photos from this year as well as tips and suggestions from the designers on the same website. The plants mentioned on today's show are Geum "Mai Tai" - a pretty apricto-flowered geum Geum "Totally Tangerine" a bright orange-flowered geum that keeps producing more flowers for months, if you keep dead-heading the spent flowers

The winner of this year's Plant of the Year is Sedum takesimense "Atlantica" with green leaves with creamy margins and yellow flowers in summer.
